HC Deb 02 May 1940 vol 360 c884
40. Mr. C. Wilson

asked the President of the Board of Education the number of authorities where there exists the closest liaison between the education committees, the Unemployment Assistance Board, the public assistance committee and voluntary organisations referred to in Circular 1450, in regard to the provision of footwear for everyday use for necessitous children?

Mr. Lindsay

I am unable to give precise information as to the number of areas in which there exists the close liaison recommended in paragraph 10 of Circular 1450. While direct responsibility does not lie with the Board of Education I am most anxious to secure full co-operation in this matter and if the hon. Member has in mind any cases in which it is not working effectively I shall be glad to inquire into them.
